F3201DEX / F4201DEX

IECEx/ATEX Intrinsically Safe IDAS VHF/UHF

Features

IECEx/ATEX Intrinsically Safe IDAS VHF/UHF Portables

Safe and reliable communications is a must in potentially explosive atmospheres. The F3201DEX series operates in both analog and IDAS digital modes and can be used with any existing analog two-way radios. Digital functions include multi-site conventional and Type-D single site trunking. These IDAS radios include a 15-bit digital voice scrambler and voting scan for multi-site conventional operation. The F3201DEX series should be your radio choice for use in hazardous environments.

ATEX (Atmospheres Explosibles) European standard

EX - intrinsincally iafe logo - Icom f3201dexThis is the European Union directive to which all two-way radios must adhere if used in potentially explosive environments. ATEX and IEC have technically identical standards for electrical equipment since 2006. The F3201DEX series will provide some of the highest ATEX Gas, Dust and Mining Protection.

Safety features

The F3201DEX series has a number of built-in safety features in analog mode. The lone worker function detects when the radio is not operated for a preset period and a beep sounds requiring the user to push a button. If no button is pushed within the preset time, an emergency signal automatically transmits and alerts co-workers or dispatcher. The man down function sends an emergency signal if left in a horizontal position.

In both analog and digital mode, the user can program the red Emergency button to send an emergency tone when pushed.

Other features

  • Channel announcement
  • 2-tone, 5-tone, CTCSS and DTCS built-in for analog mode
  • MDC1200 PTT ID and emergency transmission
  • DTMF autodial
  • Low electrical resistivity body
